“Today, 100 days after the April 19 agreement, it is clear that it has fulfilled its mission,” stated Irakli Kobakhidze, Chairman of the “Georgian Dream” party, going on to note the agreement was being annulled.
The agreement of 19 April was mediated by the President of the European Council Charles Michel.
“Although more than half of the opposition MPs did not sign the agreement, we see that our international partners do not consider it necessary to strongly urge the radical opposition to sign the document and participate in its implementation.
“The country has already moved to new, local self-government elections, and holding self-government elections when the main opposition party has not signed the document is detrimental to the interests of the country. In this situation, declaring exhaustion of the agreement from the Georgian Dream side seems without alternative,” said Kobakhidze.
He touched upon the issue of early parliamentary elections, noting that the Georgian Dream, with its own good will, is ready to call early elections not only with 43% of the vote but also with 53%.
